Charles Harper Webb‘s review of Shelly Lowenkopf‘s upcoming short story collection: “Shelly Lowenkopf’s short stories breathe gusts of fresh air into the often stuffy literary atmosphere. Witty, urbane, sharply observed, insightful, mordant yet poignant and absolutely entertaining, these stories touch the funny bone as well as the heart. Readers have had to wait too long for this collection. Grab it now.”
Manuel Ramos selected as one of the “100 Colorado Creatives.”
